SeekingArrangement.com, a dating site that helps facilitate what it calls "mutually beneficial" matches between sugar daddies (old dudes with that money) and sugar babies (young tenders with that honey), has deemed Atlanta the "Sugar Daddy Capital of America."
While it's definitely a much cooler tag than the one Atlanta's been rocking for the past 50 years or so, this has to be the most depressing news I've heard all week. It's just another example of how the top 1 percent of income earners continue to prosper on the backs of the least among us. (And since I'm not rich enough to participate, I'm straight hatin'.)
In case you're wondering what's so special about Atlanta that's caused us to earn such a dubious distinction, well, here's the foot rub: It's our robust amount of college campuses, overflowing with broke, beautiful coeds in financial straits.
Per SeekingArrangement.com's press release:
"CNN recently reported that families are only meeting 30% of the college savings goals by the time their children are ready to go to college, forcing students to make up the difference. These studies show that there is a great demand for Sugar in Atlanta."
No doubt that's the same conclusion CNN drew. Probably the same reason we're the strip club capital of the nation, too, right? But here's the kicker: In January, this same sugar daddy website - aka "the world's largest Sugar Daddy dating website with over 2 million members" - surveyed its customer base to find out which school ranked as the No. 1 school for sugar baby sign-ups on the planet. And do you know it was Georgia State Unidamnversity? (The same school I happened to graduate from so-and-so many years ago. Et tu, GSU?)
A quick glance at the website shows the sugar daddies range in age from about 40-something to crusty-around-the-creases. According to SeekingArrangement's non-scientific pseudo-study: "The average Atlanta Sugar Daddy is 39 years old, makes approximately $361,959 annually, and spends on average $3644 monthly on his sugar babies."
Which makes me wonder, where in THEE HELL do they work? And are they hiring?!?
Actually, there's an infograph for that:
Per the stats, 26 percent are "entrepreneurs" - which everybody knows is French for meth dealer. And check out that last little figure in the bottom right corner: only 1 percent work in media/entertainment. (So basically at the rate I'm going, I have a 1 percent chance ((in hell)) of caking a female out before I die.)
Apparently, there are 5.98 sugar daddies in Atlanta for every 1,000 adult males, pseudo-study continues. That puts us slightly ahead of last year's winner San Francisco (5.23) and this year's second runner-up, Scottsdale, Ariz. (5.23), where all the players play.
If you want to check out the rest of SeekingArrangement's infographics on "the Modern Sugar Daddy," have at it. I'll be out cruising around GSU in my daddy's Buick.
